It wasn't anything new in the software industry though, Atari 8-bit and C64 received ported Apple II games to begin with (and some of the best known C64 titles are actually Atari 8-bit ports like Boulder Dash or Bruce Lee) whilst the Amstrad CPC and MSX ended up with quite a few straight Spectrum ports from the UK market.

Some of it was down to developers but in a lot of those cases the "port and be damned" route was taken because the publishers had only stumped up enough time or cash to cover development of one bespoke version. i doubt many devs were happy with that decision...
